Daily Reflection


The feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, although found only in apocryphal writings, tells us an important truth about her: Mary was dedicated to God from the beginning of her life. She was prepared by her parents to be the living temple for God’s Son. God preserved her from the stain of Original Sin from the moment of her conception. She lived in the presence of God, dedicating her life to Him and doing His will. Today’s Gospel throws light on who Jesus’ mother and brethren are: Those who do the will of the Father! Mary was the foremost in doing God’s will. We, like Mary become Christ-bearers if we dedicate our lives to God and live in holiness.
